Georg Baselitz

Georg Baselitz, Printed Works 1965-1992

An artist once expelled from an East German art school for ‘socio-political immaturity’ is the focus of this exhibition.

“Reality is the picture. It is definitely not IN the picture.” – Georg Baselitz

This exhibition of 117 original prints includes over eighty works on paper, including woodcuts, engravings, linocuts and drypoint etchings.  Baselitz uses colour and form to deconstruct pictorial conventions.

Isolation and fragmentation have always been key themes in Baselitz’s works, which are instantly recognizable for usually having their subjects placed upside-down. The artist adopted this technique in the late 1960s as a way of overcoming the representational nature of his work whilst not becoming abstract.
